Here's my attempt at bashing the ever illusive and ever difficult Selene from Underworld. It's also my first time trying to take pictures using a lightbox, please excuse all the different ISO/White Balance issues.

Head: Kumik - Slight Eyebrow Repaint, Head Mod and Haircut
Body: Kumik
Clothes, Boots and Weapons: FigureFun

Nice one mate, she looks awesome. :bravo

It's just a pity that the Kumik body is do damn thin and petite, that most female clothing is too baggy on them.
Hopefully the newer femme bods coming out will be slightly chunkier, with more meat on their bones.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments :woohoo

I love it! I have the same head... What did you do to the hair?
Thanks much. Just gave it a haircut. The head is from the Kumik set, so it has the detachable wig/scalp. I trimmed down a bit of the plastic on the scalp and painted some of the hairline black, then just trimmed the hair down until it was shoulder length.

Thanks! Yeah I had a hard time looking for the right body for her. The TTL clone that came with the FigureFun looked a bit too strange for me. She used to have bulky shoulders, giant hands and a giraffe neck. I think the problem is that she is actually thin and petite in real life, so non of the bulkier bodies worked for me.



It does indeed look lovely. If I had only one small criticism I would say that the clothing looks a little baggy on her. It's mainly noticeable around the corset. The boots are a nice fit to the calves though.

Great work!
I struggled with the corset a lot, since most of the releases tailored it to a giant chest (Phicen/FigureFun), when in the movie she was quite a bit smaller. (I think a 32B in real life?) Traded fit for accuracy as the Kumik one was rubbish.

I can't find one damn thing wrong with this Selene. She look excellent.

I find your photos to be very nice, too.

A triumph, man. A triumph.

Can't say it enough, best Selene to date!! I have the same Kumik figure and have been planning the haircut. I hope it comes half as decent as yours! Well done indeed!!

:agree Yeah the Takara clones have breasts that are too large for Selene, but the Kumik body is too thin for her as well.

But you might have body in between the two with those bodies that iyiyyy has for sale.

The breasts are still quite large, however the rest of the body is also larger but not taller than the Kumik body, and they have the same length neck posts. - So no giraffe neck syndrome.

Works for me, if she's not "dead on", I'd say I prefer yours.

I actually tried the custom body but the bodysuit is too tight around the hip and rear. (Even tried baby powder, but would've definitely ripped if I forced it more) The color is also too white and would need repainting to match the Kumik head. This figure is probably the reason I've bought every recent female body out there, and also why 80% of those are in a bin now. It's been my bane for quite some time... :dizzy
